Greg Reda

Nice to meet you.

I’m a freelance data scientist and developer based in Chicago, where I help clients effectively utilize data to answer questions, solve problems, and grow their business.

Previously, I was the first data hire at GrubHub, where I led the data team for three years. I’ve also worked at Datascope and PwC.

I'd love to work together. Get in touch.
